    England V Ireland

    Apologies if this should be posted elsewhere - I didn't know whewther to put it in the SL thread or not

    Anyhow, I see that Joyce made just 9 after opening with Trescothick

    England 59-1 after 10 overs, certainly not looking like a walkover.

    Not sure of the batting order but still to bat are:
    Bell, Collingwood, Chapple, Plunkett, Jones, harmison, Mahmood, Loudon

    I think Jones has dropped below Plunkett in the order, quite some fall from grace considering he was opening 18 months ago.

    Bit generous the BBC calling it 'video' all I'm getting is stills basically. England 217-3 off 40 overs. Should make 310+ against this plodding bowling, but not many hitters to come in really.

    Hurrah, boundary in the 48th over, presumably after the fielder nodded off watching Bell bat.

    Consecutive sixes, more like it.

    that was a totally unexpected performance by england, was expecting bell to go all out to get back into the test team.. but he played well but not quite good enough to earn himself a test recall..

    anyway 300 up on board, lets see how harmisson actually bowls now..

    Just quickly flicked over to the Beeb's site. It shows Ireland 10/1 off 0.3 overs with all ten coming from wides!

    Harmy bowling first over, natch.

    Encouraging from Trescothick, but as for the rest, most got starts but never got past 20, otherwise the Irish couldve really been butchered

    Not sure why Joyce is being tried as an opener now - how many will we go through?!

    Interesting how certain people have to have a dig at Bell, even though he actually scored some runs...

    I honestly can't understand why Joyce is opening and Strauss is at 3 when he's played his entire career below Strauss in the order. By all means blood new talent but just mixing everything up isn't constructive at all.

    Jesus, why isn't anyone actually giving Ireland much-deserved credit for the way they played today? They showed the world that they can be competitve and the lower rung of nations can one day step up to the plate. I'm sure England would have a more facile victory over a Zimbabwe or a Bangladesh..

    And Ireland were missing their two top players O'Brienn (covering for GO Jones) and Eoin Morgan (covering for Ed Joyce - the irony!) - but Ireland not only managed to bat out the 50 overs but score 260 odd.. And as for that CricInfo report - that's ********.. There have been far more boring ODI's and I believe Ireland gave England a good fight.. And the first stage of the WC promises a lot more.. With a little luck maybe even an upset! Who knows what would have happened with Morgan and O'Brien? Also if Joyce was maybe playing for Ireland instead

    Sure, England didn't play that well but give the Irish credit, folks...

    Strauss is significantly better at three or four in ODIs than he is as an opener. I think Fletcher has finally cottoned on to that.
